After a long, long search, and a lack of neccessary disposible income, I finally decided on this exceptionally comfortable pack. The suspension is adjustable enough that, combined with the range of available sizes, you are practically guaranteed a perfect fit. There is even a women's model (the Petit Dru model). This pack makes huge loads bearable, even unnoticed. The packbag is big enough for any trip, even with extra luxuries like a chair kit and a frozen chicken for the first night in camp (now that's luxury).
The only problem I can forsee is the sleeping bag compartment zipper does not provide enough of an opening to allow an already-in-the-stuffsack sleeping bag unless it is really small. The compartment itself however is large enough for most bags, and it is not difficult to top load, or better yet, pack it without a stuffsack.
Overall, a great pack. Could not afford a McHale pack, or for that matter, try one before buying, and I am positive that is the only possible true competition this pack has.
